We visited the W as a small treat for us both knowing that the W has an exclusive reputation. We were the only two customers in the entire restaurant which gave it quite an unusual atmosphere. We ordered a halloumi and king prawn dish for our starter. Without doubt this was one of the tastiest starters we've ever had! Mains... More

Spg always uses their lobby as the quintessential image of paradise. Not the nicest beach, but great amenities like all you can eat ice cream :) suites are pricey, but there's nothing quite like having a private infinity lap pool.

We did not stay at W but came for a drink. You are required to pay 600 baht each to enter which goes towards food and drink. We get why they do this and while it would be a surprise for some, it is a good idea to stop lots of people coming in for photo shots only. The panorama... More

Worst place ever! Ad soon as we arrived at the beach, the girl told us, without any kindness, that if we wanted to stay in the beds we had to pay 2000 bath for the whale day (and it was sunset time...). Then we asked for a fruit shake, with banana, watermelon and coconut. First she said there was no... More

My friend and I stayed in W for two nights in their Jungle Oasis villa. We received very good service and they were genuinely content to help us. It may get a bit boring in the resort, so I recommend everyone to take advantage of the free courses available. We joined yoga class, water polo, and stretching classes. The men... More
